|   Friday, September 19, 2014
Last week the TG.com was been invited by Mercedes at Edinburgh Airport as charity drag racing with donation of 300 Euro benefiting to the Wales Hospice Prince and the Princess by inviting in this event high performance car owners to get raced on auxiliary Runway as a yearly runway get-together. This was meant to see if in Battle Royale that do road cars beat a Mercedes F1 racer car.

The cars that joined the race battle were the McLaren's 650-S Spider, 458 Spider, many GTRs and 911s, also couple of Aventadors.
Moreover, in a contest the atypical competitors included were the Ferrari's 328 GTS, TVR Tuscan, Tesla, and Mercedes 2012 AMG F1W03 raced by Michael Schumacher. Overall, almost 32 cars competed in this event.

On the particular event day Anthony Davidson who is Mercedes development driver and also Sky TV presenter drive the 7-time World Championship 2012 F1 car. Even though Mercedes F1W03 geared up-to reach only 195mph, it beat everything by 2seconds that went-up against it.

At first F1W03 stick rapidity with an AMG till 100mph and then make its way end as fastest as its tires would made it allow to run faster then it dispatched SL63, next Black Series SLS and finally it took over 650 S of McLaren's driven by Robbie Head the former driver of WRC.

Davidson claimed that the McLaren 650S which was that day's quickest road running car was beaten with by 2 sec as it was running 45mph even though F1 waited for green light did not created any problem for Davidson to cover 1500m in just 21.23 seconds to the Robbie Head's 23.47 seconds.

The F1 team unveiled to TG.com that the exhibition spec tires which Davidson was been forced to used in race seems to look similarly to standard race dampened are conventionally the road type tires in compound terms. Moreover, without equipped with extra boost 80bhp KERS and stuck open DRS, this F1W03 hits the road by 62mph in time of 2.9 seconds. Also, Nissan's GTR runs 124mph in 5.7sec and 186mph in time 14.9sec with top maximum speed after 20.2sec at 192.6mph.

According to Ferrari, its LaFerrari can accelerate in 15sec for 0-186mph which as compared to Davidson V8 750bhp and 600kg F1 car is just went slower by means of only 0.1 seconds. Similarly, the 918 and P1 are also coming in the range which is not too far behind from this.

Other car in the race battle with F1 car is the sooner up-coming Guinness World Record Hennessey Venom meant for quick sprint in time of 13.63 seconds at 186mph which is quicker than by 1.3 sec compared to F1 car. Thus, the F1W03 could have been faster also with Monza spec gears, functioning KERS and racing slicks can make it possible to beat Hennessey's Venom time but with how much of time is still depends on the possibilities. Hence, it seems the fact shows that Formula One car are getting slower and road car faster which can sooner with perfect condition can compete F1 car run for the price.
